Never stops, beautiful, inspiring, crowdy, fashion, food ,business and architecture – these are the words that can define Milan in all its perspectives. As one architect said that ” Milan was build for business, but Rome for people”, you could actually feel it when you are there. Even though the city is filled with loads of local and individual businesses, it makes it in a way special and you start loving it when you walk on it’s roads. Architecture has its own chic and uniqueness that makes it shine even more.
Having a two week workshop in Pavia within an Architectural Competition, and having the chance travelling to Milan it was a huge experience and just wonderful days. Milan rises into you some kind of wildness or child that is kept inside you. Me and my friends escaped from the whole group for a bit and run away to see the main square. We knew there is something more to see there. Just for the record, those weeks we were in Milan, were very special because of the Carnival and Fashion Weeks. So you could only imagine how many people were attending fashion weeks and you can get the feeling. Getting back to our escape plan : reaching the main square we got amazed by the amount of fashionable people sitting eating Italian ice cream and enjoying sun and themselves. In that rush hours, time stopped for everybody and everyone was the same under the sun, loving it. It was magical. It was it – Milan. Love from the first sight.
As you could see from all the Suitcase to Beijing articles, starting from Day 1 to 4, design and architecture in China is really on a high level. After all great time spent in China, and getting inspiration and memories for life time, there is one more part of China that needs to be discovered. I am talking about nothing else but its wonderful, exotic and Asiatic sense – nature.
Living between Asian people and having the opportunity and honor to know them and to get into there culture is one great adventure that I could ever dream about. The chance of seeing Chinese Nature, made my adventure complete and filled with love and freedom. With Nature Miracles of China I close the Suitcase to Beijing by now… until memories will come back and will share more exciting detailed and colorful architectural design pics and thoughts.
In the water they grow their Chinese kind of potatoes that they collect them day by day in November. Their potatoes have a great taste and can be prepared with soy sauce as well as sweet caramel. Whenever you go in China – try them out.
Red laces on the trees mean the prayers of all the people passed that tree. They do really believe that if they are climbing to the highest level of the mountain, their wishes will come true and their prayers will be heard. Their life is really based on their beliefs.
Tropical part of the Qingchengshan Mountain. The are two ways of climbing the mountain, were the I took the shortcut one which lasted climbing the mountain in almost 3 hours. The longest way are between this amazing nature seen in the pictures. Down there you meet monkeys and fascinating nature.
Temples on the mountain were filled with prayers spreading a sent of faith in the air.
Magical boat took us from one end of the mountain to another. Unforgettable journey.
Suitcase to Beijing is Over. Will be back in couple of other articles talking about design and color pallets. Stay Tuned!
5 fabulous locations of Beijing everyone should see are shown in this article. I collected some pictures to show. Beijing adventure was a phenomenal experience that I wish everyone would ones try it.
1: The Great Wall
Great Wall of China is great for it’s construction but much more for it’s history and past. Wonderful place to visit in Beijing.
2: Temple of Heaven
A place to open your mind and heart and to start listen to them. A magical place of happiness and miracles.
So much glass on there buildings. The construction is different than in Europe but definitely a good one for a city having that much of population.
4: Art Zone 789
Where Art never ends… Zone for all designers, architects, and people looking for inspiration in art and sculpture.
5: City of Beijing at Night
Night brings all the color and sparkles of the city. China is famous and well known for it’s lighting system of the building, which transform them in great ones.
This was 5 listed places that I recommend everyone should visit in Beijing for now. Coming soon Suitcase to Beijing #5Day Nature must see in China.
The Nest is one brilliant construction that take your breathe away. You wanna shout, jump, run and feel it on your skin when seeing it. Only taking a minute and thinking how many great moments in Olympic history did happen there, and what a massive structure needed to be build for it – levels it to one of the most wonderful buildings in the world.
The platform area where The Nest is situated has a great view to Swimming Pool,Beijing. You can walk on the platform for several minutes and enjoy the sunset, people and the awesomeness of architects and urban planner of that place.
Never Stop exploring new places in this world… Enjoy every second and minute of it!
Visiting Beijing you must consider having a list with all the places you want to visit, because they are really a lot of them and you cannot get enough of them every day. So here are my favorite touristic building that I was impressed about, Opera House in Beijing. Looking at it from outside is fantastic, but going inside , your heart stops and your breathe slows down. The effect of water above on the ceiling is splendid, and you could never stop staring at it. The great design of the facade as well as huge glass partition of the opera house, gives the building a posh look and raise the meaning of the building even higher.
OPERA HOUSE, BEIJING
Whenever you are passing by Opera House, take a minute and admire it… Xoxo
Leaving for Beijing this November was the most exciting thing what Autumn could ever bring. Always was a runner in whole meaning of this word and I decided that I had to try out Asia too. After 8 hours flight from Denmark to Beijing, and a night of non sleeping on the plane, China was waiting for new adventures and exploration.
First impression of China seen from the airport views was amazing. Beijing Airport, from architect perspective, is a massive construction and has an amazing structure and design. Speaking about tidiness, with marble tiles floor – the airport looked just gorgeous and sparkling.
First Day got to be long but ending in an Chinese Restaurant and with a enormous cup of jasmine tea, which China is famous with, made the whole day be the best. Here I am gonna come with a series of China trip adventures that you don’t want to miss out. Stay tuned what you should take consideration when going in China, what are the best places to eat and visit, best touristic places and nature that China amaze.
There is never late to have a look at the warm places on this globe and to enjoy good memories of Italy diary, even in Winter season.
Italy is one amazing country that catches you from the first sight…and makes sure it stays there in your mind for a long long time. I always was wandering is that because of delicious food, fabulous people or warm colors on the buildings. But maybe all together creates that aura around it that you get fascinated and fall in love.
In the pictures I collected there is shown in its brilliant way – Giglio Island in Italy and Porto Santo Stefano. Starting from different tastes of ice-cream, various pizzas and ending with houses and flowers, in Italy everything is very very colorful and joyful. Sometime we are afraid to play with color and to put more color on the buildings but keep it standard. As sunny is the country, as more color you see on the buildings… You can find any type of brick buildings in North part of Europe, but also a variety of painted houses in warm and sunny countries.
Island of Giglio is a smal populated island on winter time, being app. 400 population, but summer filled with tourists and ice-cream shops. The urban structure of the cities close to ports are really concentrated, but than you have to climb a whole hill or mountain to get to another haven place with sandy beaches and cute personal houses that you can only dream about.
Wish you a joyful time and most colorful life to all…
I was looking through my past pictures folders and I found the winter trip to Paris with my sister and family. So decided to share some of the memories from there to you. Maybe the pictures does not describe the whole trip and adventure there, but sure do describe the beauty of some little things that I enjoyed and loved.
It was for my very first time to see Paris and it kind of cached me with it’s chic and Parisian Architecture, even though the weather wasn’t the best.
The long narrowed windows or balconies you see on almost each facade brings into the mind the beauty of the Parisian history kept for years. Building facades are decorated with graved details where you see different figures and ornaments, which gives a heavy look a little bit but in the same time rich and posh. The gold lions and the gold polished facades spread in the air royalty and makes you love Paris for that even more.
Feeling special after the whole chic urban structure of Paris, Notre Dam de Paris takes you in the past and open the gate to the history, pain, war and amazing work in construction. Notre Dam de Paris is one of my favorites due to its ability to stop you thinking and start admiring and enjoying the work that has been done there. When you think how many historical moments where held in that building you will feel even more special and important to have this opportunity to see it.
One more breathtaking place is Eiffel Tower, one of the biggest keepers of love moments in the whole history. Love is spread in the air around it, and even you are not a romantic one from your nature, you are going to get inspired by it anyway. I have no idea why people started to think and decided that Eiffel tower is one romantic place, for sure not because of it’s steel structure look, but it has something in it that you love.
And finally, there is nothing better to warm up in a cold winter day, but sweetened pink sugar wool and a sister to share it. Paris is one sparkled capital…
When you need a winter escape from everything you have been doing…
There is a small heaven located in the middle of nowhere but Isle of Mull, Scotland. The isle is so quiet and peaceful you will never believe. You can hear eagles looking for food and horses that are coming right in front of your window,see a deer and fluffy animals that makes you smile anyway. You can hear and feel everything that nature prepared to you. Jumping deer right in front of you car can’t happen in every daily life.Returning home for a stay in front of fire and a cup of cacao – might be a perfect ending of the day. Maybe the forgotten isle seems to you too far away from what you are expecting from your places to escape, but you might better find yourself in this magical and amazing isle than in a loud and full of people city.
